Spring Magazine 2013

Any Hope for George Square?

The focus of this issue is squarely on the West Coast: with the amount of headlines generated by Glasgow City Council’s plans for George Square and the news of the Burrell Collection’s listed status and upcoming renovation, there has been enough happening in the area recently to more than fill all the pages!

As ever, we have a wide range of contributors, each offering their own perspective and point of view on the issues facing the sector. The competition to revamp George Square in Glasgow is probably one of the most publicly controversial architectural projects in recent years – with over 4,000 people signing a petition calling for the rejection of all shortlisted options. While the long term future of the square is still under discussion, we feature writer and critic Johnny Rodger’s take on the controversy, some rather off-the-wall alternative proposals and the views expressed by the Society’s Strathclyde cases panel.
